“Fantastic ...again!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Our 2nd visit and there is simply no where to match the hospitality and overall experience that O'nel and Thys give their guests.
Everything just superb - our lovely room; views; the fantastic food; the overall feeling of relaxation and peace. Our expectations were exceeded in every area...once again!
Making every tiny detail of such a personal service look so easy takes some seriously good planning and hard work!! Thank you for another fantastic stay.
Loved the raft trip!! Great fun.
See you all soon.

I love this place - its amazing.
So relaxing with fantastic views across the valley.
The rooms are superb with all the extras you need plus extras.
Great hosts - O'nel and Thys know exactly what to do in running a b&b that's why they win the best Farm Stay every year.
Only 20 mins from Hermanus allows you to relax but still enjoy the area.
Evening meals are superb and the breakfasts are amazing.
See you in 2014 hopefully!

Room Tip: All very good

This was our second visit to Rouxwil and we were looking forward to spending the last 3 days of our holiday relaxing here. It is always a worry when you book for a second time and have such high expectations. But there was no need to worry. Everything was just as I remembered it.
O'nel and Thys are wonderful hosts - such friendly and welcoming people. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
O'nel is a wonderful cook - her breakfasts and dinners are wonderful. Simple country cooking but quality ingredients and presented very well - there is never anything left on my plate. Try and persuade Thys to do a braai for you. It makes for a very special night.
O'nel always has suggestions of places to visit, including some excellent lunch recommendations. Rouxwil is in the middle of nowhere, so great for a peaceful break and it is so nice not to have a TV in the room. But it also so near to lots of places - Hermanus, Franschhoek, Elgin.
The rooms are very luxurious and large with super comfortable beds. Also a nice touch that there is a multitude of toiletteries in the bathrooms. You really don't need to bring any with you. Other thoughtful extras include binoculars and decent coffee and fresh milk.
This is a wonderful place to recharge your batteries and make some new friends, including their wonderful dogs! It is also nice to stay on a real farm and see what happens day to day. There are some lovely walks around the farm and you can just wander around where you want, then sit on your stoep with a sundowner and watch O'nel's pet game in front of the cottages, before heading down to dinner. Perfect!
I can't wait to return for my next visit

We had a large comfortable room with a large bathroom. We were greeted with drinks and snacks and sat outside on the veranda watching the impala, zebra and antelope grazing. O'nel is a great cook and we had delicious meals in the evening and for breakfast. Both Thys and O'nel are super hosts with a great sense of humour and you are really made to feel at home.

The location is very quiet, but there is a range of tourist locations that were easy to drive to. Would definitely stay again here.

Thys took us on a very informative and entertaining tour of his farm.

Superb luxurious rooms with equally luxurious bathroom. Sitting outside on the veranda watching the impala, zebra and gazelles grazing. We were made so welcome and the evening meal we a definite way to finish the day. Breakfast was a choice of homemade goodies and set us up for the day. Great tour of the farm and introduction to the running of a sheep rearing.
Close enough to tourist locations that were easy to drive to. Definitely stay again at this Bed and Breakfast.

We only stayed here one night, which was not enough. The owners were so nice and helpful but gave us our space as well, and O'nel is such a great cook that she made one of the best meals we had while in the country. Our room was big and comfortable, with a king bed and a very large bathroom. The rooms are separate from the main house, and we happened to be the only guests that night because it was off season, so we had the whole place to ourselves to enjoy sundowners outside overlooking the beautiful hills at sunset. Bottom line: a great place to relax, outstanding service, and a highlight on our trip. All the good reviews were right, this is the best place to stay in the whole area. Thanks O'nel and Thys!
